    Noll... not sure how you play but the Company is far easier than the Survivors. Upgrade the Corporate Chopper when the Game Starts Turn 0. Use Dogs to Kill the Sewer Guard and take the Car inside the Dog Pound.
    Use the Director, T-800 and Champions... you can afford to use the Nuclear Power Plant T-800 as you have Champions there. Take the Director and the T-800 to the Dog Pound turn 1.
    Get the Street Repaired with the Tools Resource immediately then Upgrade your Workers to Engineers. Build Sewer Tunnels as fast as you can so you can send Champions and other Units where needed.
    Even if you run into the Survivors blocking your Dog Pound Car as you go for the Coast Guard, you should capture the Coast Guard by turn 3.
    You can then use your Corporate Chopper to take Engineers to the Coast Guard to Repair the Street with the Manhole... Buy the Sewer Tunnel after it builds 1 turn.

    You can capture Tokugawa's Home as soon as you take more Units to the Coast Guard. Again, use the Director and T-800. The Corporate Chopper has rebase ability and seriously helps the Company.

    The US Marshal is stranded in the Penal Colony.

    The best way to play the company is to set up a leader farm at the Nuclear Power Plant. Just have a jogger sit on the contaminated beach and watch units come to try and kill the unit. The good thing is that since there is a forest in between the site and the Zombies, the dogs will stop there making it easier for you to kill them and get leaders. Its important to make sure you have a unit stopping units from coming from the north and have units placed next to the forest to stop them from being able to past the forest.

    classical_hero... yes, many ways to get more Great Leaders that can upgrade to needed Champions. The same is true for capturing Buildings... all a matter of personal choice concerning strategy and that requires an understanding of the Game.
    By knowing what will take place, players can take action to enable themselves with better ability to play through it all with ease and Great Power :)

    There are critical or Better Moves that can be made from the start and throughout the Game but to know what those personal moves should be requires playing and discovering what they could be. Even then, Personal Choice of Game Play and Strategy are in many ways different for each player and that is one of the things that allows the Game to be more Fun... Freedom to Play it Your Way.

    Random AI Play Factors along with personal game play decisions, where players try to find their Own "Best Way" to play the Game, are what help make the Game interesting and Fun with better Replay Ability of the Scenario. .. and this is all increased by being able to play as the Five different Factions in the Game. From that point of view it is a Five Games in One Scenario with many possibilities to have Fun with.

    If there were no options in the Game or Game Play, when anyone learned what to do and they Won, it would become Boring.

    Personally, I find it difficult to believe that a Player who Really Understands the Game would ever lose. I never lose and still find it Great Fun to play :)

    Just a minor problem that was easy to fix was that the Bat Colony was directing to the Infected Pond Civilopedia entry. I was able to fix it by putting it to the correct entry.

    classical_hero... Yes, I see that. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
    That is only in the Biq in Improvements and Wonders that has the wrong Building selected. All other files are correct.
    I Have that corrected for the next Update.

    In the mean time, I will place a corrected Biq on the 1st Post.

    I noticed a lack of bats in my games because I found out that at the Paradise Mortuary, i has the Evil skull resource instead and not bats. I manually changed it in the biq.

    classical_Hero... Yes, I changed the Bats to Evil Scull at the Paradise Mortuary for Game reasons. I just did not change the Civilopedia which is corrected now and will be with the Upcoming Update.
    Game testing and Making Units.

    I think it's a bad idea because bats can be eliminated from being a threat. Having them in the Mortuary means they are a threat all game. But that's my opinion.

    I have retained the Bats in the Mortuary and several other areas. Game testing Now.
    Really, you do not know what I have changed and the consequences.

    Bats are NOT any big deal in game but the other units are.
    Still, I have kept the Bats and that is not replacing the Bats with the Evil Skull at the Paradise Mortuary.

    I actually played this mod today.
    Not knowing the first thing about it, and playing as the Survivors, I tried to storm the Graveyard.
    You can guess how well it went & mod_Vuldacon was killed :/

    Very good mod!

    Thank You Kyriakos... Yes, "storming" a building with direct attack is a Death Sentence, Use Lethal Shooting Units. The AI will always get all of their Special Units Killed as they not only Direct Attack but they do not tend to take those Units back to a Building to Heal. I have even seen the Farmers get "Old Buzzard" destroyed trying to Bomb Zombie Buildings that have an Auto Defense System.

    I have been working on a Major Update and Game testing the last Nine Months. Still Game testing and need to test some final adjustments but I hope to get the Updated Game out this Month.

    It has been a Tough Year for most people and it has been no exception for me. Still, I am Happy with all of the corrections and adjustments and New Units, Key Locations, Improvements and Game Play.

    EFZI is probably my favorite civ scenario ever. Despite I'm not a great zombie stories fan, I have been enjoying it since its first version.The atmosphere is really unique and the whole gameplay is really challenging and fun.
    Can't wait for update release because you said "to be happy" about improvements and I learned how accurate is your attention for details.
    That would be a wonderful Christmas gift

    Wolf_66... Very Happy you like the Game, I do not get much feedback these days.

    Wolf_66... be sure to read the last of page #8 and all of Page #9 in Game Concepts "Game Tips from Vuldacon" to have an understanding about Needed Resources and what you can manipulate as a Player.

    up yours.
    EFZI is one of the most replayable scenari out there. Which can be proven by my ongoing game with the Authorities.

    NOOOOO!!! :eek: Stronger monsters... increased number of monsters... brand-new monsters... and I barely survived the previous edition!
    Oh well... back at it again! Because this simply HAS to be played! Again. And again and again...
    Thank you Vuldacon for all the hours of horror spent and to be spent! :hatsoff:

    Wolfhart... Thanks for the excited post and I hope you have Fun with the Game.
    Each replay can be very different, some easier and some more difficult. I am currently playing a Game for Fun and the turns from the late 60s through the mid 80s were a chore with multiple areas to deal with.
    Better "Break Out" the Champions and Snipers, you will Need Them! The HazMat Workers and Special Units too. Good Luck :)

    Generally, the Game requires around 100+ hours to play well but there is no rush when having Fun :D
